Everyone has leadership potential.  Becoming a stronger leader results in more success at work and in life.  Unfortunately, the title "leader" is frequently misunderstood. Leadership is not defined by a title, fame, a fancy corner office, the size of a paycheck, or prestige. You can have all of these things and still not be a leader.

Being a leader is about being effective at each task you undertake, whatever it is. A leader is someone who influences outcomes and inspires others.

As professionals, we have outcomes we need to influence every day: projects, deadlines, and the essential demands of our careers. We also have many people looking to us for inspiration and guidance. Leadership skills can help us maximize our own performance and that of those around us.
